    @Tiresius I live in Sicily, Italy. Living on an island is sometimes a little frustrating. I'd love to collect tattoos from artists all over the world, but at least at this stage of my life it seems a little complicated. This is not to say that there are no talented local artists, but I guess I tend to gravitate towards styles that are not that well represented here.  I totally see myself as pretty much covered in the future. Hopefully with work by multiple artists. It's probably not going to end up looking very cohesive, especially because I'm all for mixing different styles... But at least it will be interesting :)

    Getting logged out after each visit
    Hi, has anybody else had the issue of having to login each time they return to the site? This only started for me in the past few days. I view the site through an Ipad using an old os and safari. Cheers, Sam

    Aftercare after peeling stops?
    Is there any suggested permanent aftercare to help keep your tattoo healthy other than using sunscreen?   would have posted this in the aftercare section but i can't.

    Hi all! I have two tattoos, one on each ankle and am contemplating my third. This time however, I'v become seriously obsessed with the whole subject! Thus, I'v been viewing and examine tattoo pics non-stop. I have a booking with an artist whose work I love but have to wait a whole year.

    In the meantime, I have the following question: some tattoo artist's work seem SO vivid and the colour SO saturated, that I can't work out if its a difference in style and technique or whether they actually use a different ink. For example Giena Todryk, and Marcin Aleksander Surowiec. 

    We all know there are many brilliant artists out there - some of which are more to my taste - but few seem to achieve the sheer pigmented strength of these. Any opinions?

    Signature of the Soul
    So we're leaving soon to put some sand between our toes, and enroute we'll be passing by a shop in Daphne, Al that I've been wanting to visit = called The Bell Rose Tattoo. Owner Sean Herman both does awesome tattoos but also operates a semi-attached side project/museum/blog called the Serpents of Bienville While the latter is not not tattoo specific it did also lead me to a mid-80's (nsfw) documentary hosted by Peter Fonda which even features Lysle Tuttle dropping trou(!). Was mildly surprised to not see any reference to it anywhere on this site, so here it is:
